5 writing tips I’ve learned…
…from designing female characters in a gender-segregated patriarchal Larp subculture Most roles in historically-inspired Larps tend to be gender-segregated, involving patriarchal societies (which were mostly the norm, at least when European Christian societies – in the broader sense of term – are concerned). This makes the creation of female characters more challenging. I am not talking here of larps actually focused on gender oppression. I am rather addressing social, historical...

Larp census 2014 - How many larpers in the world ?
We want to count every larper, including you! It only takes 1 minute to answer the main questions. http://larpcensus.org How many larpers in the world ? That is the question of Aaron Vanek and Ryan Paddy and they decided to answer it with your help. Why a global larp census? Although some countries have rough estimates of their larp population, there has not been a comprehensive global census taken of self-identifying larpers on this scale. We really want to count everyone who larps, has...

The frenchstyle romanesque larp
This article was written after a very long discussion with Baptiste Cazes and Pascal Meunier about this genre and its definition. Many thanks to them. When I speak about french larps to international larpers, it’s difficult to put words on something really specific of my country. I could speak about the castles we can rent to have amazing scenery, but it’s not really something about the larp itself (and there are amazing places in other countries). There are many kinds of larps in France....

Freestyle games
Original post : http://www.electro-gn.com/310-lesjeuxfreestyle Translation : Leïla Teteau-Surel We can think of dozens of ways to categorize larps : by the length, the number of players, the theme, the scenario-building, and so on. The kind of larp I’m gonna focus on is based on bringing more involvment from the players in the creative part of the story. In a lot of games (we could take the risk to say : in more and more games 1), larp designers have a tendency to do their best to...
